AHH. You guys. YOU GUYS. A new Kristen Ashley book? Cue excessive arm-flailing and unintelligible gibberish. If you know anything about me, you know that I fancy myself a Kristen Ashley fan-girl. I beg and plead for ARCs of her books (usually to no avail) because waiting is that painful. Fear not fellow fan girls, the wait is almost over for the second book in the Magdalene series and Kristen has posted teaser chapters over on her website. It's worth checking out, trust me. Bring on Mickey and Amelia!
Series Reading Order:
Kristen Ashley was born in Gary, Indiana, USA. She nearly killed her mother and herself making it into the world, seeing as she had the umbilical cord wrapped around her neck (already attempting to accessorise and she hadn't taken her first breath!).
Kristen grew up in Brownsburg, Indiana but has lived in Denver, Colorado and the West Country of England. Thus she has been blessed to have friends and family around the globe. Her posse is loopy (to say the least) but loopy is good when you want to write.
Kristen was raised in a house with a large and multi-generational family. They lived on a very small farm in a small town in the heartland and existed amongst the strains of Glenn Miller, The Everly Brothers, REO Speedwagon and Whitesnake (and the wardrobes that matched).
Needless to say, growing up in a house full of music, clothes and love was a good way to grow up.
And as she keeps growing up, it keeps getting better.
